We have been visiting Austin for many years, and have been coming to Uchi since it opened. It remains on our list for at least an annual visit, and this week's visit affirmed that choice. Creative and highest quality food served by enthusiastic and knowledgeable servers. Pork jowl, hot rocks, Unagi, sashimi, Brie, etc.--all was excellent, and our guests equally... More

This place was LOUD, with lots of people all trying to be heard. The wait was long, but the food was delicious! I enjoyed watching the Sushi Chef make the food as I watched. Really interesting stuff.

I lived in Florida for over ten years where I ate fresh fish 2-3 times a week and loved a few sushi restaurants that I thought were the best I ever had....until i moved to Austin and 200 miles from the ocean, only to discover Uchi and the best Sashimi i have ever had!

I am in love with this place. The food is like an art there. We had my husbands bday dinner there. And it was unforgettable. It's better to make a reservation in advance. It was a weekday but this place was packed. Even if this place is a little pricy and portions are small but the taste of the food... More

Rated as Austin's #1 restaurant, we had high expectations for Uchi and they absolutely delivered. I told the waiter what kind of food I like (uni, foie gras, pork belly..etc..) and he incorporated all of those items into a massive tasting menu that blew us away. I still have dreams about the "Foie Gras Nigiri" and the pork belly cooked... More

Best California rolls I have ever had. However, the waiter upscaled them with King Crab without asking me. $9 more than regular crab...Tricky! Didn't realize till we got the bill. Other than that, great food.

We aren't big sushi eaters but came to Uchi based on its reputation. Wow!! There were good non-sushi choices, but the hit for us was the sushi, especially the sea bream. The duck fried rice was too garlicky but everything else was delicious and the service was great! Our waitress, Elise, was a wonderful guide. She helped us order a... More

Having read about Uchi and as a lover of Japanese food, this was a restaurant I had to try. Everything about the evening defied description. The selection of food amazing while the taste and presentation extraordinary. The wait staff was helpful and attentive, careful that our food was carefully paced. The atmosphere of Uchi was lively but not too loud.... More

Uchi came highly recommended and it certainly lived up to expectation! The service was great, and the food even better! Try some of their famous "tastings" and interesting sushi rolls! Can't wait to go back!
